All I want to download is what I asked to download

Whoever the clever fucking marketing cunts that put those hidden downloads within downloads within downloads are absolute grade A cunts.

If I want to download a codec, why do I have to unclcick about 7 hidden teeny, tiny boxes asking me to download the zoomfarm toolbar, and the Qualfavot shopping search engine and the change my homepagetosomething wank program.

Perhaps it's because the people who's additional stuff they make you download are the ones who sponsor them, and so enable them to program codecs for free.....

Oh yes, you're probably right. Although my main reason for posting wasn't to ask why they do it; it was more to moan, groan and vent my annoyance at the frustration and minor inconvenience it causes me in a thread that's slogan invites me to post my "moans, groans and other general annoyances" within it.

Pedantic, petulant, pointless reply to an argument provoking reply

They're not downloading codecs for free. they're using the money they receive from sponsors to download codecs with

Argument provoking reply

It took you a week to think of that witty argument provoking reply?
